Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo

Wow… This might actually be pretty good. When I read that it was going to be another one of those shows where the characters trade bodies I became sort of disappointed. God only knows how many of those there are already. But no… This was actually quite amusing and interesting.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no MajoThe artwork is pretty good. The characters look nice, the level of detail is good… Sure, there are things that I don’t really appreciate, like some of those character expressions, but hey… That’ll happen.

The story is what interests me. The main heroine isn’t your typical girly girl. Soon more will show up and it makes me curious about their personalities. I basically just want to see what’s going to happen.

Recommendable? Yeah. I think so. Why not? It’s funny, a little ecchi (yay) and contains traces of romance and huge doses of supernatural abilities. So yeah, why not?

Plot Summary: One day, high school boy Yamada bumps into the beautiful female honor student Shiraishi on the stairs (literally), and their lips touch as they fall. When they regain their wits, they realize that they have swapped bodies. As time progresses, the two realize that this is not the only mysterious happening in the school.

Nisekoi:

I wasn’t happy when the first season aired. I mean, yes, I think the manga deserves an anime adaption, but when it finally arrived… Let’s just say that I felt somewhat betrayed.

Nisekoi 2Now, some of you might wonder why I felt betrayed. Well, I can only blame the artwork for that. The characters look so damn strange and the artwork is not at all smooth or visually appealing to me. It, for me at least, is very difficult to watch and enjoy.

Nothing wrong with the story though. It’s a good story. A lot of fans say that it’s a pointless story where nothing really happens and where things just go in a loop. I cannot deny that, but I still think it’s quite enjoyable.

I for one will probably not watch this, just like the first season. I will stick with the manga. But hey, see for yourself if this anime adaption of Nisekoi is worth watching.

Plot Summary: As a child, Raku Ichijo made a secret promise with his childhood sweetheart, keeping a pendant as a memento while his love took the key. He dreams of one day meeting his past love, but years later, reality smashes his hopes when Chitoge Kirisaki accidentally knees him in the face. Though Raku’s a normal high schooler, his family heads the notorious yakuza gang the Shuei-Gumi faction. And he’s dragged into family affairs when he’s forced into a relationship with Chitoge, the daughter of a rival gang’s boss.

Denpa Kyoushi

A lot of people, including myself, have heard about the manga. I have read only the first few chapters due to a shortage of time, but I remember it being very interesting. The fact that the protagonist keeps an anime blog, like me, is was drew me in.

Denpa KyoushiSo the artwork is pretty nice. I must admit that I think Suzune looks like your average blonde character that you see everywhere and the protagonist kind of looks like a woman sometimes, but those are minor details I think.

I think the story is what’s going to make me keep watching for now. I want to know who that guy is, what he does and what he is capable off. He makes me curious. He makes you want to keep following the show to see what he’ll do next.

So yeah… Do you like funny romance stories? This might just be the one for you. I think it’s pretty funny and I can definitely tell that it’s going to be one of those forbidden student-teacher romance stories if I’m not completely mistaken.

Plot Summary: Kagami Junichirou was known as a physics genius when he was a teenager, and he was even published in “Nature.” However, after college, he suddenly lost all interest in science. As a NEET, he’s devoted himself to his anime blog and nerdy collecting habits. He claims he has a serious illness called “I can’t do anything I don’t want to do.” Desperate to get him to do something with his life, his little sister manages to get him a job teaching physics at his old high school. He’s certainly an unconventional teacher, but he becomes fairly popular with the students. After helping a girl who’s being ruthlessly bullied, Kagami finds that he actually likes teaching. Will he continue his career as a weird teacher? Will he go back into physics? Or will he end up back where he started?

High School DxD BorN

A huge harem with a lot of demon girls that are naked most of the time. Yeah, of course this would get another season. Real porn they censor in Japan but this is just fine, apparently. Hard to follow that logic sometimes.

High School DxD BorNSo Rias, Asia and the rest of the girls are all back to show us their breasts, huh? Fine. I think it’s nice that we get uncensored episodes right from the start instead of having to wait for the BD release. I hate it when half of my screen is covered by all that censoring.

The story is the main issue for me. Season two was extremely disappointing. It was more fan service that anything else, so I am hoping that that’s not going to be the case with season three. A little bit of nudity every now and then is alright, but let’s not forget about the story.

I can only recommend this to true perverts like myself. Do you like lots of nudity and action? Go nuts! High School DxD is definitely the anime that will give you loads of action and nudity.

Plot Summary: BorN covers the second half of Birth of the Breast Dragon Emperor arc and Volume 7 of The Heroic Oppai Dragon arc of the Light Novel. The new season will be produced by TNK, will be directed by Tetsuya Yanagisawa, and will be written by Takao Yoshioka, as it was with Season 1 and Season 2.

Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love Revolutions

I will never understand people’s fascination with this show. Honestly, I feel so uncomfortable when watching this sort of thing. I simply cannot understand why people would find this sort of thing amusing enough for it to get three seasons.

Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love RevolutionsSo you start watching this show and you immediately realize that they made this with a specific target audience in mind. This was obviously made for teenage girls. A show filled with pretty anime boys that sing and dance and do god only knows what else.

The story? I honestly cannot give a fair review when it comes to the story. I am simply not interested in this sort of thing so I am not going to say anything about that at this time.

Do I recommend it? I honestly cannot. If you like pretty-boy anime where they sing, dance, frolic and play then go ahead and enjoy yourself.

Plot Summary: Haruka Nanami now works under Shining, the same agency with ST☆RISH and veteran idol group QUARTET NIGHT. With an upcoming international sports event looking for performers for its opening ceremony, fierce competitions between idols are surely expected.
